Traffic was snarled on Route 3 just north of the Trenton Bridge Thursday after a three vehicle crash, which resulted in minor injuries for those involved, the Maine State Police reported.
Trooper Caleb McGary said a car rear-ended a sport utility vehicle, which was pushed into the southbound lane where it struck another SUV, which was “launched from the impact and rolled,” before coming to rest. The crash occurred at 1 p.m.
Steven Lyman, 70, of Southwest Harbor had been driving a Saab, which rear-ended a Toyota SUV, operated by Tracy Siglin, 60, of Pennsylvania McGary said. The force pushed the Toyota SUV into the southbound lane where it collided with a Toyota Highlander, operated by Zachary Huckel-Bauer, 31, of Blue Hill.
Huckel-Bauer’s vehicle “was launched from the impact and rolled, coming to final rest in the south bound lane,” the trooper said.
Siglin had his parents in the SUV, James and Margaret Siglin, 88 and 86 respectively, also of Pennsylvania, McGary said. Huckel-Bauer had been transporting his fiance, Christa Wroblewski, 32, of Blue Hill.
“All involved reported complaints of pain and minor injuries and were transported to Mount Desert Island Hospital,” McGary said. “Route 3 was reduced to a one lane road for about two hours.”
No word on damage estimates for the vehicles involved.
